UPDATE: Last night’s episode of WWE RAW drew a 2.96 (3.0) cable rating, with 4.01 million viewers, up 2% and 3% respectively from a 2.91 and 3.89 million the week before.

As noted below, the show did hours of 3.87 million, 4.16 million and 4.01 million.

ORIGINAL: The 9/16 WWE Monday Night RAW did an average viewership of 4.01 million viewers. The first hour did 3.87 million viewers. The second hour did 4.16 million viewers. The third hour did 4.01 million viewers. This number is up from last week’s show that did 3.89 million viewers.

Nick Sidel sent in these notes from last night’s WWE RAW broadcast:

The show must’ve been a sellout or damn near close, huge difference from the TNA show at the smaller arena a few weeks ago. There were tons of children with parent(s) in the audience and a lot of 20-30somethings. Crowd was really into doing the “yes” chants and Bryan was second in pop loudness, next to the Miz, believe it or not, but you can blame that on the homers. They really went nuts during his comebacks in that segment.

The only thing extra on the show was a Superstars match, taped pre-Raw.

Kofi v Drew McIntyre w Slater & Mahal. Back and forth match. The finish had Mahal on the apron attempting to try something on Kofi. McIntyre ended up thrown towards Mahal, but stopped short of running into him. Kofi took advantage of the heel backfire with his spinning kick to the back of McIntyre’s head causing him to bump into Mahal, fall down and letting Kofi score the pin.

No dark match and no CM Punk who the crowd was expecting, make that wanting, especially during the Bryan beatdown. I haven’t watched Raw yet, but after the jabronis made the save, they just marked out with Bryan for a while all doing the yes motions and carried him on their shoulders a few times then held hands and did the drama theater bow.

After the ring was cleared, Ziggler ran all around the arena, I mean ALL OVER, slapping hands with everyone. He’s a hometown boy as well, but I guess there’s only room for one guy from Cleveland in the WWE. Here’s a fun fact, I was born in same hospital as Miz, then moved to the city that Ziggler is said as hailing from! I really want to know why Ziggler chose Hollywood, Fl as his announced place of residence? Anyways, no dark match, but Bryan came out for a 5 second curtain call.

I actually had a pretty good time considering there was a lot of yapping, no Punk, no special matches, but damn, Bryan can be put in with a broomstick and make it fun. Someone please put on a great show in Cleveland, they always seem to be mediocre.

    “The show must’ve been a sellout or damn near close, huge difference from the TNA show at the smaller arena a few weeks ago.”

    but creature_of_the_night keeps telling us on here how tna is so much better with better storylines, matches, bigger stars and the best wrestlers. wwe pg is a joke and bryan/shield/zigglers can’t draw

    GREAT NEWS!!!!!!!


    Smackdown below a 2 – RAW below a 3?

    Danielson is a bust – what’s a bust? – A bust is not getting the 6s that the Attitude Era got – nuff said on that – glad to clear that up for you.

    But I said Danielson wouldn’t draw, and the IWC just goes on how he’s this technical marvel and he can roll around in his underwear better than anyone else – sorry – a million guys can do what he could do – FACT!

    But the IWC tries to seem smart and cool and that they see something in him – I was having this same conversation about Brooks for years, but now the IWC is on a new bandwagon – the IWC has shown me one thing – through their comments and their undies getting in a bunch because of me having my views – how ignorant and intolerant and immature they are.

    But yeah – Raw never got below 3s for YEARS and SD never below 2s.

    Now look – I always said Brooks and and Danielson are not mega-stars and don’t have IT – except to the Universe and IWC.

    But this news makes me happy – so I will make this my only post of the day – I have important work today….

    ….need to work on my fantasy football teams


    GO TNA!!!!

    GO ROH!!!!

      that makes no sense, if a bust is not getting 6s like the attitude era then every wrestler before and since is a bust. hulk hogan was a bust in the 1980s because sure as hell wwf were not doing 6 ratings on usa back then, bret hart, shawn michaels, lesnar, cena, hogan in 2002, rock and austin from 2001 onwards have all been a bust because not a single raw has done a 5 or 6 rating since the wars ended

      raw often got below a 3, again you clearly don’t know what you are talking about (the other day claiming sd was broadcast on usa network), raw exactly 5 years ago to the week ie september 15 2008 did a 2.7 rating
